People Think Blogs are News

Wow. Did you think this was a news site? Do you believe that blogs are real news?

Blogs are individual opinions. Ever heard of opinions? Real news reporting requires facts. I get most blogs do not check facts. I don't. I just give my opinion on what is happening.

I guess if you do not believe what the news reporters are reporting, the blog next door is just as good.

OPINION. Look it up!

Opinions are sometimes just as good as news since many news agencies put their own biased twist on the way a story is told. I swear you can read or hear the same story told from five different places and get a different take on it at each place. But it is good to declare that all you are offering is opinions.

Just a thought!

i agree with what you said about the news being biased, but to a certain extent you are biased in saying that the news is biased. Everyhting is biased in a different way, you cant ever get a true opinion on something unless you are directly involved in it, bacause, like you said theres always bias because of peoples experiences and things...i dunno maybe its just me

Being that I work at a newspaper...

The media is biased. But they think they aren't. While some news agencies aren't blatently skewed by passing opinion off as fact, they are biased editorialy through what stories they cover and how deeply they get burried on the back pages...or what time in the wee hours of the morning they report on them...or what facts they omit...

I think that blogs aren't hardcore news, but in a sense they are because they usually talk about things that are true. Besides, news casters and journalists add their opinion, (however quietly) anyways. So screw news! Blogs are better!
